SlideDraw Setup Guide

We have put together a few tested configuration that we have seen in production.

On touch screens, in short, they are tricky in macOS. So, SlideDraw uses the basic macOS “mouse events” for drawing. This means standard single mouse down, click and movements. Different touch screen devices may present other forms of input and may require drivers provided by other manufacturers for additional costs.

We highly recommend using an display specifically for the Control Panel. You can easily add a “dummy” display to your Mac with a headless dongle for less than $10.  This will create an additional virtual display for your Mac and allow the GPU (graphics) to work more efficiently. Then using a screen sharing or remote desktop client, you can remotely control and utilize this additional display.
